President Truman Criticizes Opponents of His “fair Deal” Civil Rights Program

President Truman stated in a radio address today that those who denounce his “fair deal” civil rights program as “alien or dangerous” were “just about 160 years behind the times.” The President said that those who make outcries against the “fair deal” program, which includes fair employment practices, want the people “to forget the language of the Constitution.”
